You wouldn't want to use a 12 volt fuse or breaker, for example. You do not want to substitute a higher amperage rated fuse as it will allow more current to flow before blowing thus risking damage to the equipment or even fire! I have seen folks replace blown fuses in their autos with a higher amp rated unit and the insulation melted off of the wires before the fuse blew!

2009-10-20T18:11:26+00:00 <![CDATA[Fuse Question]]> The other night at a gig, my '83 Fender Concert blew a fuse. (Luckily, between sets). I usually carry a few extra fuses but that night I had forgotten. The Concert is a 60 watter and it takes a 2.5 amp, 125V Slo-Blo. That night the rhythm guitar player had a 2.5 amp, 250V Slo-Blo, so I used it. Can I continue to use the 250, or will it blow real soon? By leaving it in, will it damage the amp in any way? I'm picking up a few of my 125V fuses today and I'll pop it out and replace it, anyway. Any info?
